Don’t throw away $50,000! Winning Powerball ticket expires this week

Local News

SUFFOLK, Va. (WRIC) — Someone in Virginia could have $50,000 sitting in their purse, pocket or around their house. 

The Virginia Lottery says a Powerball ticket sold in Suffolk won $50,000 in the Oct. 20 drawing. No one has come forward to claim the prize. 

By Virginia law, winning tickets expire 180 days after the drawing, so that winning ticket will become worthless at 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 18. 

The winning numbers for that drawing were 16-54-57-62-69, and the Powerball number was 23. The ticket was sold at the Speedway at 1555 Holland Road in Suffolk and matched four of the first five numbers, plus the Powerball number. 

If you have the winning ticket, contact the Virginia Lottery at 757-825-7800 or present the winning ticket at the Virginia Lottery’s Hampton Roads Customer Service Center at 2306-2308 West Mercury Blvd. in Hampton.

Unclaimed prizes go to Virginia’s Literary Fund, which is used for school construction and technology upgrades.
